Wingecarribee Shire Council's Waterwatch program is monitoring the health of key urban waterways in Bowral, Mittagong, Robertson and Moss Vale.
Water quality monitoring is a great way to keep an eye on the health of a particular catchment. Conducted regularly and consistently, water quality tests can highlight trends through time and indicate when something is not right and requires further investigation.
The parameters currently being tested at eight locations through the Waterwatch program are temperature, pH, electrical conductivity (salinity), turbidity and dissolved oxygen.
The following waterways are included in the Waterwatch program:
